williams could have done that. the defense is saying no way, this is what happened here. you had evidence back then in 1984 that amos norwood had a sexual relationship. >> the victim. >> the victim, with terrance williams and not only that, you also had evidence back in 1984 that amos norwood, the victim in the case, had been abusing other boys as well, and you didn't turn that over to the defense. well, the judge listened to both sides and said to the defense you're right, this evidence should have been turned over to the defense back in 1984. the jurors should have had an opportunity to hear that when they were making their decision. jurors didn't have an opportunity to hear that and, ashley, you know this. i interviewed one of the jurors from 1984 just last week. they said had i known then what i know now, i would not have voted for the death penalty. >> not just that juror. already other jurors and actually isn't it the widow of amos as well has come out saying i am not so sure i am comfortable with this death penalty? do i have my wires crossed? >> the widow came out and said that sh
days after the attack, defense secretary leon panetta stated plainly what was obvious to many, including senator john mccain, who joins us shortly, almost from the beginning. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place, that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. >> the best we can tell, this is the first time any administration official has uttered the word "planned" to describe what happened. asked how long it took to reach his conclusion, secretary panetta said quote, took awhile once information from benghazi came back. but keeping them honest, multiple sources now tell "360" that officials knew this was a terror attack almost from the get-go within 24 hours. at least intelligence officials. yet this is what they were saying for more than a week publicly after the killing. >> it'important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun, and will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired, but our current best assessment, based on the information that
challenged woman. holly hughes is with me. you're a criminal defense. used to be a prosecutor. have you ever seen a case like this? and what is the explanation? kind of seems like a path mentality that all these girls worked together to do such a horrible thing. >> it is. and unfortunately we're seeing more and more of this with our young people. we're seeing children who wouldn't ordinarily do something like this if they were by themselves. they would probably just walk by that sweet lady. 48 years old and mentally disabled. why don't you pick on somebody your own size? this is so disturbing. that's why we've seen them charged as adults here. they're all underage. they could have been taken into the juvenile system. but they have all been charged as adults. they're facing 20, 40 years depending on how many charges are stacked against them. >> it almost seems like they were feeding off each other in this video. how damaging is that video to a judge, to a jury seeing that and how brutal it was? >> that's exactly right. and it's not just that some of them are throwing punches. but it's that en
, the defense secretary, using the word planned. we think that's the first time we've heard that from administration officials. you say the way in which the mortars were used in this attack would right away lead to that conclusion. >> well, it's very hard to walk in mortars on a targe and apparently as i hear, they were hit, the annex, very quickly by mortars so somebody had the exact coordinates, somebody knew how to fire mortars, direct fire, and i think that's what has the pentagon concerned that this was a military style attack and the people who did attack it knew what they were doing. and you know, in defense of the secretary of defense, the details are coming in very slowly simply because it's been difficult to get people out of the country. the debriefings have gone slowly and we can't put people on the ground because of the security situation. so the truth has come out very slowly, even inside our government. >> fran, a lot of people are being critical of the administration. to play devil's advocate here, it's one thing for politicians who are not part of the government to sa
weapons for security reasons. defense secretary leon panetta characterized itsimited movement and bieved the stockpiles were secured by the syrian military. now, panetta says the sites are being monitored b the united states and other countries. he says they're keeping a close eye on th situation. earlier today barbara star questioned the defense secretary about the development, and she's h- just a few monts. >> there's gr ap in d.c. that's figured out a way to send u. dollars rebels, and the government, well, the u.s. government is nott happy about this. brian todd has the story. >>orter:unned at the beginning,syrian's rebels have gradually gained strength, taking the figh me directly to bashar al assad's regime and scoring ies have started om thicomputer in shington? herehat's where you can a hey conduct - whe thave a stronghold. >> brian heads the u.s.-based arm of gro, a nogoveal grodedicated to help rebels. >> why did you want to do this >> wel,ou know, i have a, and he's 18 mo old, d i think that -- i sawy images of what w goi on there. 2-year-olds that are, you know, white, pale,
obam has to connect those two things. he can't get defensive. the president, on the other hand, has to deflect from that. he has to make the debate about the choice between himself and governor romney and press him about specifics. try to make the argument that the -- that governor romney's policies would take us off of a path of recovery we might be on right now. and he can't get defensive as well. both men, when they get into the defensive posture, tend not to do very well in debates. >> what do you think is the most treacherous ground for each of them? what is the thing often -- i'm sure you've studied a zillion hours of debate tapes. what triggers debates in both of them? >> when both get on defense, when they have to defend positions they're uncomfortable with, they tend to get defensive. that's what caused the $10,000 bet with governor romney and that what caused the moment where president obama, then senator obama, told hillary she was likeable enough. i think both of them, when put on their heels, tend to make mistakes. >> let's play a clip of that from the hillary clinton/b
will be watching for is whether the court takes a case on gay marriage or the defensive marriage act. so a lot on the plate and some very divisive and even wedge issues, the court could be deciding this term, ashleigh. >> and listen, joe, as we've been covering the supreme court for the last 20 years, it's no secret that these decisions become increasingly partisan or at least that is the optics out there for those of us who watch this. because those decisions are always right down the line it seems on the big, big topics. in fact sandra day o'connor recently said in an interview said she's distressed about the confidence level in the country. so with these big decisions coming up, is it important for chief justice john roberts to keep that in mind? to keep this confidence level of the united states front and center as this group makes these decisions? >> well, i think right now despite the health care decision that everybody knows about, you still have to say that chief justice roberts is a conservative. and you're right, this court is very evenly divided, sort of four on the right, four on t
the case that the best defense is a better economy. >> in battle ground virginia both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery. romney slammed the president for the defense cuts coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with heed lookers who write-off half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% people of the people -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's remarks into a devastating new ad playing the words under the faces of families and veterans. >> and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not worry about those people. they should take personal responsibility.
plan that the best offense is a good defense? finally, can barack obama get back into a winning mode? the polls were looking good going into this, right? you got two remaining debates with romney. we are going to get some answers and smeperspective from charles blow. i read your column and i know how you feel about this. give me the quick one-liner how you thought last night went? >> obama lost. i play basketball in high school and you're not in your best form and you lose it. doesn't mean you lose the election and the other guy is better. just means you danny show up that night and didn't do a good job. go back, look at the tape and practice hard and come back the next time and do a better job the next time. >> he let himself be interrupted. he didn't call out certain kinds of issues when mitt romney was able to walk through him and lay out a slew of stats. >> they widon't call what mitt was saying is facts. >> fact checkers hit both of them pried hard. charles, is this a question of the president who is trying to remain presidential and elegant and eloquent? that didn't work like,
on the ground to provide sort of the defensive security perimeter around the benghazi compound. now, i spoke to a senior administration official who said they have been having regular meetings twice daily, secure video teleconferences on updates of the investigation. there has been regular deputies committee meetings hosted by dennis mcdonough, the deputy national security advisor and discussions regarding libyan support and cooperation, my law enforcement source was quite clear, it's not that the libyans haven't been cooperative. there have been discussions that the libyans were concerned that they themselves couldn't provide the sort of comprehensive security to protect the fbi team and that there were concerns on the libyan part about having a u.s. military presence on the ground. all of that said, anderson, as you point out, 18 days later after the attack, the fbi today sort of indicated to me through a senior law enforcement official they're having serious debates as to whether or not with the passage of so much time, whether it makes sense to take the risk at all even if they could hav
the president on the defensive and letting him explain his record because obama '08 no longer exists. those debates were great for him because he can run on promises, he can make people feel hopeful. he now has to run on his record. >> i agree with this. jennifer granholm, when i watched the convention speeches for the democratic convention, i thought that bill clinton made a mesmerizing speech, brilliant both in the rhetoric and the devil of the detail which was undeniable. all the fact checkers attacked him the next day and didn't find anything to attack him over. you then have barack obama the next night and i just didn't think it was nearly as good. i thought that was a bit of a problem even though the clinton effect can help him, the barack obama now has not got that sort of messianic feel he had four years ago. he's got to really raise his game in these debates. >> the great thing about this debate is that it gives him the chance to directly confront mitt romney on what his plans are. mitt romney has been talking generally about how he's going to save the country from the economic mes
-elected you will see dramatic cuts. the secretary of defense said this will be devastating. i had not cut our commitment to our military. i had get america's middle class working and keep the military strong. thank you, jim. >> thank you, mr. president. the next debate, the vice presidential event on thursday, october 11th at center college in danville, kentucky. for now, from the university of denver, i'm jim lehrer, thank you, and good night. [ applause ] >> they started off with a hahn shake and smile. wound up with a handshake and smile and meeting their respective families at the end of the 90-minute debate. the president actually spoke for a little more than four minutes more than mitt romney spoke, 42:50 for the president. 38:32 for mitt romney. a pretty good night for mitt romney. expectations were so much higher for the president that he would come out swinging, but mitt romney clearly held his own, and all of the various issues, they went back and forth. we didn't hear some of the attack lines from the president, so many of us were expecting he would be making. neve heard him mentio
of defense, leon panetta confirms this. >> we do believe that those sites still remain secured by the syrian military. there has been intelligence that there have been some moves that have taken place. where exactly that has taken place, we don't know. >> panetta also says the u.s. and other countries are monitoring these weapon sites. >>> pope benedict's former butler is on trial today at the vatican. he's accused of leaking hundreds of secret pages from the pontiff's apartment. if he is convicted, he could spend up to eight years in prison. he has pled not guilty. the vatican computer technician is also on trial. >>> more than 100 voter registrations in the big battleground state of florida are being called suspicious.ur endorsed by weight watchersbd and your taste buds have always endorsed us. so, you know what this means... this is a real win win! yoplait, it is so good. gins with back pain and a choice. take advil, and maybe have to take up to four in a day. or take aleve, which can relieve pain all day with just two pills. good eye. since then, there's been one wedding, 2 kids, and 43
was on cruise control, sort of playing a prevent defense against newt gingrich. but then once gingrich won south carolina, he turned it on. the next couple of debates, everybody talked about gingrich master debater and romney won. he does have some debating skills. >> he's good under pressure. and the good part is, he's under pressure. >> here's the historical problem with that, there's very little correlation between debate performance and changing the dynamic of a race. you have to search wide and far to find somewhere where the debate has changed the dynamic in the race in a person who's not leading 45 days out if a guy comes back and wins that race. he's up against history here for changing the dynamic. >> but there is a challenge. he has to be likable. only one out of five americans are going to watch this. those are the opinion makers across this country. what he has to be is likable. the pundits say, he didn't make this point or that point. you decide who wins a debate on television with a sound-off, not on. >> i disagree with you a little bit. you go back to 2004. john kerry went into th
. he is trying to make the case that the best defense is a better economy tying national security to the economy, but one very interesting thing that happened here, suzanne, mitt romney at the very end of this speech here said he is going to win pennsylvania. he said that earlier. he said it again he is going to pennsylvani the polls -- or latest cnn poll of polls shows mitt romney down by ten points here. it would be a very tough uphill climb for h to win tstate. >> right. >> i think it's in the romney campaign's interest to expand the map, and i think that's what they're trying to do. >> john mccain didn't win pennsylvania the last go round either. ditheyhange in any significant way when they look at the demographics and they get some sort of optimism or confidence from that? >> well, you know, pat toomey, the pennsylvania senate repuan annnced m romney. he was able to wi t state, and even though he had some credentials, he was ahead of the ub forroh at one time, and so this is a state that haseen trendiittlng a le more republican in recent years. they have a republican governor
? >> reporter: presumably what's going on here is that like any defense attorney the legal team representing paolo gabriele in this process is trying to create sympathy for their client and one of the ways they are trying to do that is to suggest that some of that testimony that he gave to vatican investigators during the preliminary investigation over the summer may have come under duress and, therefore, should be taken with a grain of salt. now what the vatican will tell you, suzanne is some of these conditions such as keeping the light on all time and having people go in and out of his cell a lot to check open him was largely because he was under a sort of a suicide watch. these were obviously extraordinary circumstances. the guy was under enormous pressure. they were worried he might try to harm himself. they will argue some of the condions he's describing were not intended to harm him, they were actually intended to keep him safe. this is kind of the standard opening skirmish that goes on in virtually any criminal trial. >> the butler is saying he handed over these documents because he
got testy about being on defense. i think that came across to the american people. >> keeping them honest, it's hard to find evidence for that conclusion in our poll of people who watched the debate. 67% to 25%, they thought mr. romney won the debate. when asked who was more likeable, debate watchers gave the two candidates essentially equal marks. that's one piece of spin that doesn't quite pass the sniff test. decide for yourself if this one does from the campaign's ben lebold who suggested mitt romney last night was acting. >> it was performance art. he locked himself into some bad positions that he took during the republican primary, tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas, refusing to ask the wealthiest for a dime to reduce the deficit and those give us big openings to talk about on the campaign trail in key states in the weeks ahead. >> vice president biden, meantime, said his boss did a good job during a bright line between his policies and mitt romney's. >> i think the president did a wonderful job in making it clear just how stark that choice is. >> keeping them h

in the debate last night. plus, big bird thrust into campaign politics and on the defensive. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> only 33 days to election and an entirely new dynamic in the battle between president obama and mitt romney. the republican nominee is widely seen as the winner of last night's debate while even the president's strongest supporters now concede he was not at the top of his game. and now the president is back out there on the campaign trail. he's getting ready to speak at a rally over at the university of wisconsin in madison. we're goingo be hearing from him live this hour. but first, listen to what he said about mitt romney at a rally earlier today before he left denver. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney.

even though he too is on the defensive as it relates to health care? >> the president is clearly in the lead, but still in a somewhat precarious position. he is defying gravity. he still has at least 2/3 of the country saying we're on the wrong track, usually that's a very difficult environment for the incumbent to get elected. and for the president, voters are not convinced they wanted to go the romney's direction, but extending where we are for the next four years is not an attractive process. he's got to walk that tight rope by saying we are moving in the right direction. and also kind of give people a sense of the next four years that are going to be better in their arrives than the previous four have been. >> sometimes we look ahead and see that yes, what these candidates say is going to be important and pivotal what their body language has said. who can forget the gore-bush debate, and you have to wonder betwn these two candidates, romney and obama, who's likely to win, who's likely to be too breathy, or maybe be an easy read just by finally expressions that could potential

wineberger, former president ronald reagan's defense secretary, was implicated in the iran contrascandal shortly before election day. bad news that bush, who served as reagan's vice president, did not need. in 2004, a classic october surprise. osama bin laden released a video on october 29th, just four days before election day in a razor-thin race between president bush and john kerry. three years after 9/11, it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believed helped president bush. more recently the term october surprise has come to mean a seismic event in the fall of an election year. though most have centered around foreign policy, others have been about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisors say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact, it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly
